Nancy Pelosi Calls Afghan Peace Agreement An Important Step

US Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi has reacted to the signing of a peace deal between the US and Taliban group in Afghanistan.

“The agreement between the United States and the Taliban for a conditions-based U.S. troop drawdown, following a seven-day reduction in violence, is an important initial step toward advancing security and stability in Afghanistan. However, many significant additional steps remain to achieve comprehensive and enduring peace. These steps include the opening of critical intra-Afghan negotiations between Afghan political leaders, the Taliban and civil society to advance a political settlement and permanent, sustainable ceasefire agreement,” Pelosi said.

She emphasised that Afghan women must be at the negotiating table and their voices must be heard.

“The participation of women in the peace process is critical for the security, economy and governance of Afghanistan. We cannot afford to turn back from or lose ground on the important advancements made by and for women and girls in Afghanistan,” Pelosi asserted.

She stressed that the United States Congress continues to stand by the people of Afghanistan in our shared mission to advance a future of security, stability, peace and prosperity for all in the country and region.

“We must do everything we can to keep our troops safe and bring them home, and to give peace a chance,” she added.
